Open Auditions:

Sunday & Monday, February 7 & 8 at 7 pm.
The Pillowman
by Martin McDonagh, directed by Heather Uuk
Performance dates: April 22 – May 8, 2016

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka & the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art. Adult themes.

Katurian…….. male 20s-50s
Ariel………….. male 20s-50s
Michal……….. male 20s-40s

Mother………. female 20s-40s
Girl…………… female 10-20s**

**Parents: if you allow your underage child to audition, please be aware that this play contains dark material. If you would like to read a script before deciding, please send a message to heather AT acrosstown.org.

Auditions will be held at 7:00pm on Sunday & Monday, February 7 & 8, at the theater– 619 South Main Street in the Baird Hardware complex. You don’t have to be present both nights, but it doesn’t hurt. Expect cold readings from a provided script; dress comfortably. If you are not available for these audition times, please let us know. We can schedule another time.

Although auditions, by their very nature, require that performances and their suitability to any individual role be judged, we won’t judge YOU. If cast you will be compensated by the roar of applause and the joy of being part of the Acrosstown family 🙂

If you have an interest in helping with technical aspects of the show, have any questions, would like to read the script before auditions, or need to schedule a different audition time, please contact heather AT acrosstown.org.

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you at auditions for The Pillowman!
